Medicare-for-all sounds appealing to many Americans; about 60% to be specific. But as they say, the Devil is in the details. The fact is there is no consensus on what M4A actually means.
Proponents of M4A are doing a good job avoiding talking about what it really means, how it would work, what it would cost, how it would be paid for and how health care would be managed on an ongoing basis.
Most Americans don’t know what they are really for, (they don’t even understand Medicare), they stop asking questions once they hear “free” and no out of pocket costs. They are being mislead.
Public support quickly erodes when people hear further explanation about potential tax increases or increased government control and recent polling also shows many people falsely assume they would be able to keep their current health insurance under a single-payer plan, suggesting another potential area for decreased support.
